Hydrogen Sulfide

A common toxin in New Mexico is hydrogen sulfide, or H2SO4 . Companies store hydrogen sulfide underground, however if they don’t contain it properly, it can leak into the water supply. Exposure to water turns hydrogen sulfide into a toxic gas called methane, and when it travels through the pipes and into homes, it can cause serious injury. Hydrogen Sulfide injury and death can happen when the methane literally causes the home faucet to explode.


There are many uranium mines around New Mexico. Uranium has radioactive particles that are very toxic, and improper or negligent handling can cause exposure, resulting in injury and death. If stored improperly, uranium can seep into and contaminate the groundwater aquifer.

If you or a loved one has suffered injury because of one of the above toxins, do not hesitate to contact our toxic tort lawyers today.
